Rural Transit Assistance Program

Rural Transit Assistance Program (RTAP) funds are used to support non-urbanized transit activities in four categories: training, technical assistance, research and related support services. This program is a component of the Section 5311 grant.

Eligible recipients of these funds include all Montana rural transit providers receiving federal transit grants. Funds are also available to Montana’s public transit operators in small urbanized areas such as Billings, Missoula and Great Falls, as long as the activities are primarily designed and delivered to benefit non-urbanized transit providers. This program is 100 percent federally funded.
